Little Grebe

I was in Dublin yesterday 29th July collecting some camera gear.  I decided to head to the Phoenix park with a colleague Colin to try out some camera's and lenses.  We got shots of this Little Grebe, feeding very small young in one of the ponds on the west side of the park.  Pretty late I thought for such small young, the parents must have failed earlier in the season or else they were successful and decided to raise another family.  The mother was feeding the three young on water snails.
